TCI Certificate in Trauma-Informed Care

During Trauma Support Services' 2023-2024 grant year, Trauma Care Institute is pleased to offer another cycle of our TCI Trauma-Informed Care Training Certificate.

This is a training program with the ability to receive a Certificate of Completion for professional development hours attended by August 31, 2024.  *Please Note: This is not a Certification*

All CE Credits are NBCC approved and meet the professional development requirements of Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council. 

Certificate Information and Requirements:

This training certificate focuses on trauma-informed work with female survivors of violence and crime, their families, and the resiliency of survivors as well as that of service providers. This program seeks to inform and assist mental health professionals, law enforcement personnel, lawyers, advocates, and other criminal justice and victim service providers navigating their work with survivors through a trauma-informed, diverse, and empathic lens.

This program is designed to be flexible and self-paced! Participants are not required to sign up for the Certificate Program if they wish to attend our regular trainings. However, if you plan to join us regularly throughout the year for live events or access many of our On Demand webinars, this opportunity will provide you with the additional reward of our training certificate after you complete the required number of training hours below.

This can be completed through any combination of LIVE Webinars Via Zoom, Pre-Recorded Webinars, and In Person trainings hosted by Trauma Support Services' Trauma Care Institute. Up to 8 hours of training done through other organizations can count toward the certificate completion but must be an approved topic (see below).
